Deeds or karmas may be grouped under the heads of individual karmas and group karmas. The latter are karmas performed by a society or a nation as a whole and these are termed as Dharma. As an individual bears the fruits of his own karmas (actions), so does a society, for it has to bear the fruits of the general policies it pursues with the result that innocent individuals have also to suf­fer for the wrongs arising from the wrongly conceived dharma of the society to which they belong.

No one escapes from them unless the same are worked off (without making any more addi­ tion thereto, which of course in the nature of things, is an impossibility), in innumerable lives that lie ahead. It is, therefore, not possible to exhaust this tremendous credit balance in one’s account.
